    Brotherhood Of Man is a British pop group best known for winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976 with “Save Your Kisses for Me”. “Kiss Me, Kiss Your Baby” is another hit single from the year before. The disco pop song reached the Top Ten in several European countries. The typographic choices on the various releases impressively illustrate the dominant role that dry-transfer lettering played for single sleeve artwork during this period.
